City reaches agreement for Sloan-Kettering and CUNY medical facilities

September 10, 2012
By Al Barbarino

Quote:

The city reached an agreement with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the City University of New York today for the construction of two new state-of-the-art science and medical facilities on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The city will sell a 66,000 s/f site at 525 East 73rd Street for $215 million. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center will construct an up to 750,000 s/f cancer care facility and CUNY Hunter College will build an up to 336,000 s/f Science and Health Professions building to upgrade its science and nursing facilities.

The project is expected to create more than 3,200 construction jobs and nearly 830 permanent jobs, according to an analysis conducted by the New York City Economic Development Corporation and it will capitalize on considerable growth occurring in science, technology and research fields in New York.

CUNY and Sloan-Kettering Build Cancer Center and Nursing School on UES





September 10, 2012
By Jill Colvin

Quote:

The City University of New York and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center are teaming up to build a new, state-of-the-art cancer center and nursing school on the Upper East Side, officials announced Monday. The plan will transform an old city sanitation garage along the FDR Drive at 525 E. 73rd St. into a gleaming 750,000 square-foot cancer treatment facility, which will focus on lung, head, neck and blood cancers, including groundbreaking out-patient bone marrow transplants. As part of the deal, CUNY’s Hunter College will build a new, 336,000 square-foot Science and Health Professions center at the same site, which will bring the school's nursing and general departments under the same roof.

The project, which still must go through the city’s land use process, is expected to be completed in 2017 or 2018.

The East 73rd St. facility was demolished in 2008 with the intention of erecting a new garage. But when budget constraints delayed that project indefinitely, the city began brainstorming new ways to capitalize on the site, which was once home to an incinerator.



The foundation of DSNY's old East 73rd Street garage are still around.




A parking lot is now on part of the old East 73rd Street sanitation garage site. CUNY and Memorial Sloan-Kettering are teaming up to build new cancer treatment and research centers.

Hopefully the adjacent ConEd site is redeveloped as well.

I know there were rumblings a few years back that ConEd was looking to sell, because there were some new underwater transmissiom cables that made the site largely redundant.

If that site is redeveloped, I bet it will be more of the same medical/research institutions outbidding residential developers. You have Cornell, Rockefeller U., Memorial Sloan Kettering, Hospital for Special Surgery, etc. in the vicinity.

Quality of glass and materials will make or break this design. It could be an amazing addition to the East River skyline or a gimmicky scar. Either way, I'm hoping Carlos can give us regular updates from his view across the river.

I'd be shocked if Carlos could see this development from his balcony/terrace. More than likely it is blocked by other lic towers/59th st bridge/Roosevelt Island, but you never know.

Carlos?

As for the renders, they look great. Lots of impressive architecture in NYC these days.

^ Indeed, we are getting some nice designs in small packages. I think this one will only be improved upon.

The East River Treatment
Memorial Sloan-Kettering and CUNY collaborate on two new towers along Manhattan's East River.






Branden Klayko
9/24/012


Quote:
Manhattan’s East Side, already no stranger to hospitals, is about to play host to two new innovative medical towers. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) and CUNY’s Hunter College have partnered on the projects, which will add more than a million square feet of academic, research, and patient care facilities to the city’s premier healthcare corridor. Designed collaboratively by Perkins Eastman and Ennead Architects, the buildings will seek to fulfill the evolving needs of the industry by placing a premium on adaptability.

“These buildings by their very nature have to be flexible. Floor plates and layouts have to accommodate a good deal of change over time,” said Brad Perkins, chairman at Perkins Eastman. “In the future, cancer treatments may change and the building must be able to handle that. In a specialized facility like MSK, each floor might be designed for a particular treatment but five years from now there may be considerable change.”

One of the most notable changes to traditional healthcare architecture in this design is the absence of extensive bed wards. “A lot of cancer treatments are now performed in an out-patient setting,” Perkins said. “You don’t need to be in a hospital bed. You can go home and be monitored. It’s the wave of the future.” Eliminating the wards and their rigid layout requirements from the program gave the architects room to provide more accommodating spaces.

Arranged as a series of stacked six-story volumes each containing a programmatic unit, the two towers—750,000 square feet and 336,000 square feet respectively—were designed to improve user experience. “We’ve adjusted the massing to maximize river views for both towers,” said Todd Schliemann, founding partner and design principal at Ennead Architects. The setbacks created by each volume also offer refuge for patients, families, and students with views across the river and surrounding city.

The towers are still in the schematic phase and must go through the ULURP process and pass review by the community board.

Giant New Medical Center Is Like 'Morbidly Obese Man' On Plane, Foes Say


February 13, 2013
By Victoria Bekiempis


Quote:
Outraged neighbors say plans for a new medical center and nursing school on the Upper East Side will be just as uncomfortable for the community as sitting next to "a morbidly obese man" on a long plane ride.

At a recent public discussion of the City University of New York and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center campus, which is set to rise in a former garbage truck garage at the FDR Drive and East 73rd Street, residents were irate over the project's community impact.

George Alexiades, who lives on East 72nd Street, complained that the complex would choke a neighborhood that already has minimal breathing room.

"Who would you rather sit next to on an economy seat on a flight to Japan — a 5-foot-5 morbidly obese man, or a 6-foot-5, 170-pound guy?" he said. "That's how we feel in this community about living next to a building this size."


In September, the city approved the CUNY-MSK plan to build a state-of-the-art, 750,000-square-foot ambulatory cancer treatment facility at the site of the former garage. CUNY's Hunter College will also construct a 336,000-square-foot Science and Health Professions center on the same site as part of the $215 million deal, taking the college's nursing and general departments to the same campus.

But residents have raised quality-of-life concerns, claiming that CUNY and MSK are being "bad neighbors" to an area they think is already overrun with hospitals. Ed Hartzog, a Community Board 8 member and City Council candidate, reiterated safety concerns, saying construction would worsen traffic. "It's Armageddon," Hartzog said. "It's 'Thunderdome.' I can't tell you how many times I have seen ambulances in total gridlock on 72nd Street."

Shelly Friedman, a lawyer who's representing the project's developers, added that CUNY and MSK would consider giving the Department of Parks and Recreation money to revamp the nearby Andrew Haswell Green Park, which was damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

This did little to allay residents' agitation.

"We've reached critical mass," said Teri Slater, a CB8 member. "We want open space — and we're going to get it one way or another."

I think we should ignore people who choose to live in Manhattan and then complain about living next to large buildings.

It should have been pointed out that one simple way to get it is to move.

If they want open space, there is Central Park. Besides that it is Manhattan, an "URBAN" jungle. God, I hate nimbys.

Tensions Run High at UES Medical Complex Public Forum





Thursday, May 9, 2013
by Jeremiah Budin


Quote:
The joint project from CUNY Hunter and Memorial Sloan-Kettering that would put an enormous nursing school/medical center between 73rd and 74th Streets next to the FDR Drive has already drawn the ire of some Upper East Side residents. The two adjacent buildings (designed by architects ennead and Perkins Eastman), which would total over one million square feet—six times greater than what the lot is currently zoned for—have already been compared to a "a fat lady trying to squeeze into a too-tight girdle" and a "morbidly obese person" on a plane by angry Upper East Side residents.

Last night, at a Community Board 8 Land Use Committee meeting, those residents (who have now organized into a group calling themselves Residents for Reasonable Development) as well as a large group offering support for the project showed up in droves. When the dust settled, 43 residents had offered public testimony (25 supporting the project, 17 opposing, and one who just wanted to talk about 3-D printers), and the signs hanging on the front of the CB8 table reading "Civility" and "Brevity is a Virtue" were long forgotten.

The meeting began with a series of presentations from Hunter and Memorial Sloan-Kettering higher ups on the need for state-of-the-art facilities for cancer research, and a few of the people who supported the project were currently undergoing cancer treatment. Some Residents for Reasonable Development took this as an affront, claiming that their position was being twisted to make them seem un-empathetic. "We're opposed to this project; we're not opposed to curing cancer," one resident said. The reasons most often cited for opposing the project included increased traffic and congestion as well as the dangerous precedent it would set to allow developers to build huge projects while buying off the community with a donation to a public park.

The public park donation was also a point of serious contention. CUNY-MSK had previously won support from the community by introducing a zoning text amendment that would pledge funds for new open space in the area, promising the funds to Andrew Haswell Green Park, if their various height, setback, rear yard equivalent, lot coverage, and parking waivers were approved. However, some members of the community noted that Andrew Haswell Green Park was not actually mentioned by name in the amendments, meaning that the rug could be pulled out from under them at a later date.

Approval of mammoth UES hospital project sparks neighborhood uproar
NIMBYs argue Memorial Sloan Kettering facility will strain area resources






August 22, 2013
By Guelda Voien


Quote:
Upper East Side residents have so many real estate-related reasons to fume these days. If it’s not the waste transfer station, then it’s the rat army unleashed by the Second Avenue subway construction — to say nothing of the overcrowded trains that one tweeter described as “Mumbai with a Bronx attitude.”

Now, add to the list a proposed 750,000-square-foot hospital facility that won approval yesterday from the City Planning Commission for a “bulk variance,” allowing the behemoth proposal to go before a City Council vote, the final step before shovels are put in the ground.

The planned buildings would stand 450 and 340 feet tall along the FDR highway, and house an outpatient cancer center run by Memorial Sloan Kettering and medical school facilities for Hunter College, a division of the City University of New York.

While a price tag has not been floated for the 23-story complex, renderings on the Sloan-Kettering website show glassy cubes with tree-filled terraces along the East River. But some residents say the neighborhood can’t handle the hulking buildings — and attendant traffic –and that other parts of the city need new medical facilities more than theirs.

“Hospitals are great, and there are a lot of communities that need new hospitals,” Andrew Moesel, head of Residents for Reasonable Development, a group of area residents opposed to the medical projects, told The Real Deal. “We don’t think this is the best place to put new hospitals.”

However, Memorial Sloan Kettering said it was only responding to the city’s 2011 request for proposals, which mandated a health care, educational or research facility be built on the block, at the FDR between East 73rd and East 74th streets.

The buildings require a variance that will allow the two institutions to rise considerably taller than the zoning currently allows — 60 feet according to City Planning’s website. At a commission hearing yesterday, City Planning unanimously approved the variance, with one abstention by a member who recused himself, a representative for Memorial Sloan Kettering said. A call to City Planning was not immediately returned.

But the approval only rankled the residents group, who vowed to bring legal action to stop the development. The area “bears more than its fair share of the burden,” Moesel said. “York Avenue already has probably a dozen [hospitals],” he added.

To some, the planned project is akin to erecting a Rockefeller Center in the middle of their neighborhood. “It’s the equivalent of trying to squeeze a fat lady into a too small girdle,” said resident Minna Greenstein, in a July release opposing the development.

While a representative for the hospital declined to respond to the residents’ accusations, she retorted that the facility would bring “the latest cancer treatments to thousands of New Yorkers.”

“We are pleased that the City Planning Commission overwhelmingly approved our application, building on Community Board 8’s approval in May,” the representative added via email.

While Residents for Reasonable Development would not specify what claims the group would pursue in court, Moesel pointed to possible impropriety with regard to the “sale of the land and the spot zoning.” No city records were available for the block, borough and lot number that corresponded with the location of the site.

The duo – Sloan Kettering and CUNY – won the bid to build on the site in September 2012, when Mayor Michael Bloomberg awarded the institutions the right to develop the space, currently a garage, at a press conference.

Sloan-Kettering/CUNY’s East 74th Street Dual Facility Approved Despite Opposition


10/15/2013

Quote:
On September 16, 2013, the City Council’s Land Use Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises held a public hearing on a proposal to develop a hospital and educational complex on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The applicants were Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) and The City University of New York (CUNY)/Hunter College. The project site is located on 74th Street between York Avenue and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Drive, immediately north of the “medical corridor,” which includes Cornell Weill, New York Presbyterian Hospital, MSK, and Hospital for Special Surgery. The application would amend the zoning map to convert the current industrial zoning to support community facility development; amend the zoning text to allow contributions to public park improvement in exchange for additional floor area; provide special permits to waive certain height and setback requirements; and provide a special permit to increase the number of parking spaces in the MSK parking facility from 166 to 248.

.....Residents of Yorkville strongly opposed the proposed project, echoing some of the concerns raised by the Council Members. Several of the speakers argued that the development was too large and traffic intensive for the already congested residential neighborhood that surrounds it. They also expressed concern about the continuous transformation of Yorkville, which will cause the neighborhood to be in a constant state of construction. Some Yorkville residents suggested that the proposed project be built in areas of the City that need hospitals.

The City Planning Commission approved the application on August 21, 2013. The Commission found that the application minimized or avoided adverse environmental impacts to the maximum extent practicable.

The Land Use Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises and the Committee on Land Use unanimously voted to approve the application on October 3, 2013. Council Member Jessica Lappin recused herself from voting because someone with whom she is associated may have a conflicting financial interest. Council Member Mark Weprin commented that the City Council took into consideration the concerns of the community. Council Member Weprin also said that MSK/CUNY has a parking management plan in place and will be providing $500,000 in funding for a traffic study to examine the traffic issues that were raised. Council Member Daniel Garodnick stated that the traffic situation on York Avenue was extremely challenging, but he is “encouraged by this traffic study.”

On October 9, 2013, the full City Council voted to approve the application by a vote of 45-1.
